Keyboard defaulting is driving me up the wall

http://forums.androidcentral.com – I've done some searching, but can't seem to find a solution to my particular problem. I'm using a Nexus 7 with the default screen displayed keyboard. I do a lot of spreadsheet work on the N7 using Kingsoft Office, but the real bummer is the keyboard. Doing a lot of entries on the spreadsheet, I don't want the (Bad word) keyboard to automatically go from 123 back to Alpha everytime I do something. It there a way/setting I can action to keep the keyboard in 123 mode all the time I'm working on sheets. Thanks Dave (HowTos)
